NYC - Here We Come!

I'm so excited to be going back to NYC. This time Michael is coming with me and he's never been before! We are going to have a grand time.

But this does mean our studio will be closed from Jan 16 thru to the 24th. You can still place your orders online and we'll get them out to you as soon as we return.

I hope to have lots of pics and stories to share too!

Vogue Knitting Live in Chicago

What a great time we had at VKL in Chicago ! This was my first time visiting this grand city and it is fabulous. We arrived to 70 F degree weather and spent the first day cruising the river on a architectural tour. Wow!
Then it was time to go to work. We set up the booth at the venue - the elegant Palmer House.

It all went quite smoothly and except for the super ugly carpet we think it looked pretty good.

Three days later and we're all packed up and leaving the show. Thanks to everyone who helped make it a great success and we can't wait to come back.

So thrilled we are to publish our latest design.
Florence, named after my mother, is a lovely little lace cardi. I know she would have loved wearing this feminine, fresh hemp top with lace fronts and reverse stockinette back and sleeves.  There's some neat slipped stitch patterning on the back and sleeves which look rather like seams but so much easier to do.   
I purposely designed this top to be worked at a looser gauge which makes it a great cover-up weight. In the summer it can be worn over a tank and in cooler seasons a nice long sleeve tee underneath is all that is needed. Knit in allhemp6 or allhemp6LUX for drape, durability and easy care.
Oh and I haven't mentioned this yet, but Florence is FREE.

Hemp Tablecloth

For years I've been dreaming about knitting a hemp tablecoth but just never got around to actually knitting one. Well, last week Kathy comes into the studio and gifts me a hemp tablecloth - it's gorgeous!  I'm blown away with the beautiful work and all the thought and time that went into it. She used our new allhemp3LUX yarn and it feels so dreamy and drapy I just might wrap it around me and dream some more!

TNNA 2012 - We're here!!!

Hello from TNNA. I took a couple of pics today just before the show opened. Too bad the glare is on all the posters because they look so awesome.
Tomorrow is the last day. We've had a number of new shops purchase our yarns and patterns. Thanks to everyone who made this show such a great success.

And someone remind me not to book a 5:30am flight out of Columbus AGAIN! That's 2:30am BC time....what was I thinking!!
